Since we can’t actively cover every news article that breaks (as much as we would love to), PhoneDog compiles various news announcements and press releases that have been published throughout the week and places them in one easy to read article known as "Tidbit Tuesday."  Enjoy!

Nokia E72 available for pre-order through Amazon
If you've been holding out for the Nokia E72, now is the chance to purchase it.  It's a NAM (North American) edition E72, meaning that it fully supports America's wireless bands.  Offered at $469, it's anyone's guess as to when the device will actually launch, but if it's on pre-order, I can't imagine it being too far off.  With the debut of the E72, could we see the E71 drop to a significantly reduced rate?  Via Engadget Mobile

iTunes sync enabled (again) in webOS 1.2.1 update
The iTunes/Palm Pre battle continues, as the newly released webOS 1.2.1 update re-enables syncing between the popular medium.  Other improvements include improvements in Exchange mail syncing.  It will begin to arrive on handsets in the next few days.  Via PreCentral (image from Gizmodo)

HTC Tilt 2 to be available on October 8th?
Though the HTC Tilt 2 was announced for AT&T a few days ago, the press release didn't specify a launch day, instead stating that it would arrive in "the coming weeks."  I don't know about you, but that's entirely too vague for me, particularly when it's one of the first Windows Mobile 6.5 devices to hit the market.  Fortunately, BGR and his team have received word that October 8th (Thursday) is the official launch day for the highly anticipated phone.  Just to recap, the Tilt 2 will cost $299.99 after a $50 mail-in rebate and new two-year agreement.  Who's excited?  Via BGR
